Jerusalem Arts Campus

 

Need:Downtown Jerusalem is in the process of undergoing an exciting urban revitalization process, which will have a significant impact on the city’s economic and artistic development. This urban renewal has the potential to create new economic, educational, and cultural opportunities for all of Jerusalem’s residents, Jewish and Arab, religious and secular, old and young. In order for the revitalization process to fulfill its potential, it must provide state-of-the art facilities that will attract young students and artists to the city center in order to create the vibrant atmosphere befitting a modern world-class capital.

 

Response: The Jerusalem Foundation and the Jerusalem Municipality are establishing the Jerusalem Arts Campus for higher education, which will bring major arts schools to the vicinity. The Jerusalem Arts Campus will provide educational opportunities for those who wish to use their creative talents to enrich the city’s cultural landscape and nurture the next generation of artists, thus expanding Jerusalem's arts scene.Located next to the Gerard Behar Performance Center, the Jerusalem Arts Campus will house four of Jerusalem's leading performing and visual arts schools: The Sam Spiegel Film & Television School, the School of Visual Theater, the Nissan Nativ Acting Studio and the Center for Middle Eastern Classical Music. When complete, the campus will sprawl over approximately 10,000 square meters, with more than 650 students.

Population Served: The 650 students who will study at the Jerusalem Arts Campus, downtown residents, locals and travelers who attend productions by arts students and young graduates.

 

Impact: This new project will significantly improve the schools' facilities and encourage resource-sharing. In an arts world which is becoming increasingly cross-disciplinary, students will benefit immensely from creative collaboration with artists from other schools and with surrounding arts centers. This winning combination of world-class facilities and prime location in the heart of the nation’s capital will give these schools the competitive edge required to draw young students to Jerusalem.

 

Partners:Jerusalem Municipality; Jerusalem Development Authority through its                   subsidiary, EDEN-JCDC
